sub-account of distribution of quotas for emissions of greenhouse gases for installations of subjects of administration which operation during action of the National plan of distribution of quotas for emissions of greenhouse gases falls under requirements of Item 1 of article 94-2 of the Code;

sub-account of issue of carbon units for internal projects on emission reduction of greenhouse gases and (or) increase in absorption of greenhouse gases;

sub-account of sale of quotas on the terms of auction;

5) accounts of operators of installations;

6) accounts of the applicant of internal projects on emission reduction and (or) increase in absorption of greenhouse gases (further - accounts of the applicant of projects);

7) account of operator of the state register.";

10. Accounting of units settled on the basis of the verified reports submitted by operators of installations annually is carried out by the operator of the state register.

Chapter 4. Procedure for the reporting under carbon units of emissions of greenhouse gases

11. The operator of the state register of carbon units provides in authorized body in the field of environmental protection reports on carbon units of emissions of greenhouse gases and the performed operations with them quarterly.

12. Reports of operator of the state register of carbon units on carbon units of emissions of greenhouse gases include the following information:
